What if? I was raised with the mentality that pushing up and placing such questions was surviving never living. Living implies takings risks, being free, cautious of the actions undertaken but always moving. Life's about moving and breaking circles.
It means being able to decided for yourself what's best. Because best (in my family) has always had a happy connotation. What does make me happy? One should never forget that we are here to be happy.
Nonetheless, what if appears to my view as a captive paradox under which Foucault stated:
"the imaginary is not formed in opposition to reality as its denial or compensation"...
